Subject: [Caml-list] [ANNOUNCE] ECaml 0.3 : a simple object system
ECaml is a simple object system for OCaml, based on polymorphic variants
and a Camlp4 syntax extension.

ECaml can
  o create objects (entities) of anonymous class
  o create new classes within functions or other classes.
  o very easily define methods having polymorphic arguments

  o Removed a bug resulting from the use of colon (:) as the method
    invocation operator.  Of course this was conflicting with the type
    casting syntax, so now I am using the operator '#'.  Users can still
    access methods on standard OCaml objects using the word "invoke" in
    place of '#'.
  o Added a way to concisely describe entity types, for module signatures.
